EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have made a formal bid to host a Super Bowl.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirms the team’s application to host either the 2018, 2019 or 2020 Super Bowls has been received.

The 2018 game will be awarded at league meetings in May 2014, and the 2019 and 2020 Super Bowls will be picked at the same forum the following two years.

This season’s championship game is set for New Orleans, with the 2014 Super Bowl going to New Jersey and 2015 headed to Arizona. The 2016 and 2017 games will be awarded next May.

Minnesota last hosted a Super Bowl in 1992. A new $975 million stadium is going to be built in downtown Minneapolis for the Vikings. The hope is to open it in 2016.
